Making home made butter is easy. I started with grass fed cow milk ,
let the cream rise to the top.

I put the cream in a quart jar and let sit for several hours, I did this out side to start.

After several hours I began to shake the jar , a shake every second is enough.

Before long the fat begins to stick together and seperates into butter and the white liquid is butter

Its easy to see when its time to pour off the butter milk and refrigerate the butter.

I drink the butter milk.

This butter will be used to make butter tea, and the rest eaten.

I wish I had Yak/ Nak milk to use  for traditional Tibetan butter tea. Which is good for winter and high altitudes, prevents chapped lips and provides energy.

easy as can be. You can use a sweet cream for whipping cream and get a white butter.

I got a few pics that did not get posted , my tea cups and an old ceramic butter churn.

I have a friend who only uses homemade butter for cannabutter.

That looks tasty and fun! I can see a nice dab of that melting down in the pan ready to meat some garic and shrimp...

How long do you have to shake? Must be a bit of a workout, hey? Lol

I shake for about 15 - 30 minutes, its not that much work.  Best butter and butter milk I have ever had. This is fun for kids to make
and help while learning something they will never forget. My mom had let grankids make it by letting them sit on a carpet and roll it to each other takes about 30 minutes that way.

I regret not learning to make cheese , my mom was going to show me how but we never got to it. Homemade yogurt is also easy to make.
